Open pdf in Opera workaround

  • I have Opera 22 installed as a portable version on a USB key, running on a MAC that is a work computer (not my personal computer). I was not able to open pdf files in Opera when the "Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in, Version 10.1.3" was enabled. However if I disable the plugin, I am given the option to download the pdf. Once downloaded, I am able to open the pdf with Adobe Reader installed on the work computer.

    Not sure if I can install a different plugin that would work, but at least the method of disabling the NPAPI plugin is a workaround to open pdf's from a website.

    FYI: Type opera:plugins in the address bar of Opera to see your installed plugins, and to disable or enable them.

  • You could also install this extension, probably.

  • I'll give it a try when I get more bandwidth available to download at another location.

    FTR, here is the english link to the above: https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/pdf-viewer/?display=en

  • Hello. This is the future calling to say things will “just work” when you guys catch up with us. Opera 25 (available today “Opera Developer”) has a built-in experimental PDF viewer. Enable it by visiting opera://flags/#bundled-pdf-plugin

    :)

  • add setion in "Preferences" file (\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable)

    find:
    "devtools":{.... }

    add after:

    ,"download":{"directory_upgrade":true,"extensions_to_open":"pdf","prompt_for_download":true},

    и так можно с любыми типами файлов.
